When is Heap ever healthy, I think he's damaged goods at this point in his career. Great, Devard Darling and his 4 career receptions in 4 seasons should really jump start the offense.

I'm a big Heap fan but he needs to do something to keep himself from getting hurt so much. It's hard for him to be considered on of the elite being out all the time.

Heap will continue to get hurt until he figures out how NOT to get hit. I've never seen a TE try to initiate contact like he does. It's almost like after he catches a ball he runs over to a defender and falls down in front of him ... funny !!

Heap, grow a pair buddy. Is it because you're Mormon? Do you refuse to take pain killers? Either way, sack up. You make a ton of money which equals a certain amount of responsibility to play through some hammy pain. If nothing else, serve as a decoy. I realize you don't care about the rest of the season, but we do.

This isn't his HEAD or his SHOULDER that he's hurting from running into people - its a hammy that you strain from running on it wrong. The guy's a professional football player - when you get paid to play sports its part of your job to stay healhty. Start stretching more, rub some dirt on it, and get back out there.

I think it's time to put Wilcox on the IR. He has hardly played all year so end his year now and fill it with a player you really need. And you guys bash Heap. Bash someone you hasn't played all yeat because of a toe injury. What about JO, nobody jumped on him for his toe injury either. But Heap gets a hamstring injury and all of a sudden you guys bash him to death. If he injures his hamstring anymnre not only can he tear it but it also can end his career. Is that what you all want? He has given so much to this team so leave him alone and why don't you bash Billick and McNair. They are the ones that put the Ravens in this position not Heap. This is what losing does not to just the team but to all Raven fans. We all jump on each other for the dumbest things.

I can't remember the last time I saw him run for more than 5 yards after a catch. He is always being tackled and he instinctlively put's his head way down low rather than try and dodge the guy or jump over him.

This might sound like blasphemy but if and when billickball doesnt work and we blow this team up I think heap should go too. We are paying this guy as a top three tight end and the girly man cant ever get on the field. Hey Todd the season is 16 games not 8. Just trying to remind him because with the exception of last year he has played closer to 8 games a season then 16. What a giant p@#$&.

Yea he's hurt a lot, but think of what the qb's and billick have put him thru. For several years heap was the main receiver and the other teams defense treated him tough. they knew the ball was passed high for a jump in the air reception and he took a beating for it. Can't blame the man for finally looking out for himself. Some of you so called fans can't understand what the players really do on the field for the team. Some of the fans are whiners who need to get on the field and try to do what Heap has done.

I have never seen , or heard , of a bunch of crybabies in all my life. This is the NFL you bunch of PANSIES. You get paid damn good to do what you do so get off your butts and play. If not give the Owner back his money that he pays you.

What if our soldiers , policemen , firemen act the way you Pansie Ass's do. Go home and tell Mommy that you have an undisclosed illness or you have a boo boo.

Get rid of these bums and malcontents

I am sure we could easily get injured and miss half to all games. No problem.

Dont blame heap because he's tired of being hung out to dry in the kill zone...get a better quaretrback and offensive coordinator..Heaps a big tall guy who gets drilled by smaller faster DBs who see him as a targetbarn... he's probably reserved himself to saving some of his health for a functional offense either here [if Billick is ever gone] or somewhere else....God knows Boller's throws will lead him right into high velocity impact just like against wilson and the cardinals... you would'nt want to be abused like that unnecessarily either

The solutions is simple for Heap. Now that McNair isn't playing he can borrow the suit of armour McNair wears.

I like to know how many games without Heap have the Ravens won?
